Yep. Totally time for another perfectly crafted spicy margarita….Β  this one has fresh juiced English cucumber, jalapeno, lime and agave and just a dash of sparkling water.

Recipe:

Peel and juice one English cucumber or several if your feeling fired up;)

Set aside peel for garnish- I made the cutest little knots. Lol

Ice two glasses

Add one shot silver tequila each glass ( I’m a #patron gal, I think we know this)

Add juice of one and a half limes to each ( slice remaining for more super cute garnish)

1.5 teaspoons agave each

Half a Jalapeno each- gently muddle

Splash of sparkling water ( I use #smartwater, I’m convinced I will need the electrolytes- hahaha πŸ˜‰

Shake or stir then garnish aforementioned cucumber knots and limes

Cheers! β™‘

These delightful little babies are one of my personal favorite weeknight/ #vegetarian meals and not only easy and fast but also super yummy and colorful πŸ™‚

Sautee half of a white onion with 3 cloves of garlic in a bit of olive oil then once translucent add 3 cups of cooked black beans (yes canned beans are perfectly acceptable!) Let heat on med to medium low until most if the liquid has cooked out. Add one tsp each of cumin, chile, red pepper flake, cayenne and salt. Slightly mash together then top with chopped cilantro.

We filled corn tortillas with our smashed beans and a little of our favorite cheeses. Pan seared them in hot oil front and back and served with fresh pico de gallo, guacamole and cilantro chimichurri…

Freaking awesome baby!!!

Send me pix of your favorite week night dish! Love to see your ideas and try some of them too!

These Stuffed Oatmeal Cookies are a sure fire way to brighten someone’s day πŸ™‚Β  I used a classic oatmeal cookie recipe with flour, brown and white sugar, baking soda, pinch of salt and of course whipped butter, eggs and pure vanilla extract. We baked them for about 20 minutes, let them cool and then filled them with old fashioned buttercream.Β  So dang good I had just one more right before bed with a chilled glass of milk.

My dad is a huge fan of oatmeal cookiesΒ  So I have a few set aside just for him. β™‘ Always make a little extra so you can share them with friends and family.
